The 26,000-Year Astronomical Monument Hidden in Plain Sight
"On the western flank of the Hoover Dam stands a little-understood monument, commissioned by the US Bureau of Reclamation when construction of the dam began in 01931. The most noticeable parts of this corner of the dam, now known as Monument Plaza, are the massive winged bronze sculptures and central flagpole which are often photographed by visitors. The most amazing feature of this plaza, however, is under their feet as they take those pictures."

Working with timezones
"I do enjoy thinking about some of the strange things that can happen with time and timezones and it can be amusing, and occasionally useful, to read some lists of counterexamples to reasonable-sounding statements about time, but it’s hard to actually get stuff done with this information alone. All those counterexamples might leave you thinking that dealing with timezones is basically impossible to get right, whereas in fact it’s not that difficult once you draw the right pictures. I thought it’d be useful to share the pictures I find helpful when approaching timezone-related problems."

UTC is Enough for Everyone, Right?
"Programming time is pretty weird. It can sometimes make you feel week in the knees, and very days and confused about how it all fits together. But watch it: this is hour burden to bear, and we can't just let it past us over."

Putting Time In Perspective
"To try to grasp some perspective, I mapped out the history of time as a series of growing timelines—each timeline contains all the previous timelines (colors will help you see which timelines are which). All timeline lengths are exactly accurate to the amount of time they're expressing."
